A timeless war that has shaped the world finds it’s most recent battle taking place within the WWF. It is time for Snake vs Dragon. It’s time for 21,000 fans to gather on September 13, 1986 (aired October 4) Coliseum at Richfield, Ohio.
That’s right, on this episode of The House Show Jake “the Snake” Roberts and Ricky “the Dragon” Steamboat face off and neither man has come alone. Damian is in play and Ricky has brought his own namesake to counter. Hulk Hogan has been betrayed by his blood brother, Paul “Mr Wonderful” Orndorff. The Iron Sheik has a new manager. An impressive two out of three falls match takes place for the tag team titles. And the beginning of a dramatic face turn.
Plus your trios tag team champions take the conversation to parts unknown. The Educator’s winter break plans. Kevin eats and hunts and gets called names. Why do Hulk Hogan’s friends keep turning on him? Where did all the managers go? Extensive talk about dragons. Plus, what happened to the former WWF champion, the Iron Sheik?
